RECORDING & MASTERING
Recording spaces should inspire the best performances from artists, in rooms that are isolated and quiet enough to capture every nuance. Audio control rooms and mastering spaces require accurate monitoring for critical listening, so that the engineer knows exactly what’s in the recording. And typically all these rooms must be built for collaboration.
TELEVISION & SOUNDSTAGE
When it comes to large-scale spaces for television or motion pictures, creating rooms with good acoustics is only a starting point – a fully-functioning TV studio or soundstage also has to have all the appropriate infrastructure and support spaces. RBDG brings a depth of experience with every size and style of production environment.
AUDIO & VIDEO POST
The process of editing audio and video elements requires spaces with sophisticated technology that must also foster creativity. RBDG designs post production facilities that encourage collaboration – places that are comfortable settings but with impeccable technical performance.
COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY
Technical facilities in academic settings must serve two distinct objectives: they should introduce students to environments they will encounter in their future jobs, capable of producing content of industry-standard quality, but they also must be spaces where entire classes of students can simultaneously participate in the technical process and observe how their decisions affect that content.
HOUSES OF WORSHIP
Spaces that create spiritual community must blend the importance of intelligibility for the spoken word with the shared experience of worship music. Whether in congregational spaces or the production facilities that communicate the message to a larger world, RBDG helps design houses of worship that seamlessly integrate excellent acoustics with technical capabilities that are increasingly sophisticated.
Lecture Halls & Auditoriums
Spaces where large groups listen to a presenter or experience video and audio programs have unique requirements for both their acoustical performance and the technical systems that increasingly include broadcast, streaming, or archive capture as well.
Watching a movie or listening to music in a room that is purpose-built to deliver a superb visual image with pristine immersive audio can be a transcendent experience… but more importantly one that’s fun to share with family and friends. RBDG creates spaces large and small that are tailored to the way you live and enjoy media.
A medium that relies on sound alone to deliver its message needs facilities where that sound can be captured without extraneous noise or acoustical anomalies that will distract listeners. RBDG has designed more than seventy public radio stations across the country. We create spaces that are acoustically accurate with the infrastructure, workflow, sightlines, and support functions that make for an efficient radio operation.
